Atlanta, GA, November 12, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Grant Tomlinson LLC., announced today the launch of www.esquireondemand.com, an online marketplace where clients are put back in control in the hiring process of an attorney. Esquire on Demand joins a growing number of online communities which provides a platform for members to accept proposals from freelance professionals based on the clients' needs or search criteria. What makes Esquire on Demand unique is the community's exclusive focus on attorneys. There clients can hire and pay an attorney securely while enjoying the savings made possible by the competitive proposal process.
The platform is simple and intuitive allowing for:
1) the member to describe their need in the form of an invitation for proposals;
2) the invitation to be dispatched to attorneys possessing the skills for the project; and
3) the interested attorneys to submit proposals empowering the member to hire the attorney of his/her choice.
A representative from Grant Tomlinson explained, "One clear benefit to the member would be their ability to control the budget by selecting a budget range for the project. This aids the attorney in tailoring their proposal within the defined budget range. Once the client accepts, the attorney is hired for the agreed on budget.
"Benefits are also realized by the attorneys as they now have an additional forum for meeting new clients who are ready to establish an attorney-client relationship. Additionally, if the client elects to pay through the secure escrow service, attorneys will no longer have to be concerned about non-payment thus taking the hassle out of billing. Furthermore, attorneys, law firms and legal departments (both private and governmental) interested in hiring contract attorneys to outsource work, can do just that by registering as an Attorney/Client and posting their projects on the platform."
Esquire on Demand comes at a time where the legal workforce is changing with an over-supply of attorneys. Major law firms have been cutting back on new hire recruiting while seasoned attorneys who have been burnt out are desiring more to practice remotely through virtual law firms and from home offices. Additionally, the market for contract attorneys continue to grow as attorneys are opting to bill less yet gain more control of their lifestyle.
